The ocean might separate us, but there is still definitely a family resemblance. Interestingly the similarities do not end with physical appearances. Personality traits are evidently genetic. Here are all but one of my first cousins on my father’s side. I am standing in the middle. The next generation is showing the same similarities!
My uncle prepared 3 bonfires. This is the largest, primary one. It stands in a clearing in the woods.
Yesterday we drove to the northern part of Estonia to visit with my other cousin for a few days. She is a speech therapist and her husband is a driver and assistant to the Portugese ambassador in Estonia.
Our weather prayers have been answered. The weather has turned beautiful with a promising warm and clear forecast. This afternoon we’ll go to a northern beach and tomorrow we are taking a ferry to Helsinki for the day. This is an unexpected bonus trip. Truly a Scandinavian tour this trip: Norway, Estonia, and Finland.
